BARBERSHOP (A Moment From the Film TIGER)

A Scene From “TIGER”

Captured by: Eric Latek


I just wanted to post a very nice, pure and honest moment captured in the filming of “TIGER” between Gary Balletto and Kenny Phillips. When filming this story, its always just me and the camera. Whatever I seem to capture at the moment, is pure, unscripted and all real. I’m not one to push any belief system into my work, nor, on a personal level, do I care about another person’s dogma. To each his/her own. At the end of the day, just be a good human being. In any case, I felt there was great dialogue between these guys and wanted to share it.

  2. Gary Balletto and his family are truly of the fighting spirit! Family is so close and strong. Love this entire family 😉


  4. God please make Extraordinarily happen,please soon,!thank you,z 🙂 Jesus! 🙂 🙂

  5. Eric Latek is the best story teller I know in my life. You truly change people’s lives with your genius art trough films. I am honored. Gary Balletto & Kenny Phillips are simply the best in this. Blessings!

  6. My Mom lost her Mother, Father, Sister, and Brother all within 3 years. All good Godly people. Sometimes we don’t understand why things happen, but in my opinion, only God can change everything suddenly. He is our only hope in this life. I don’t think He allows us to go through anything we can’t handle. Sometimes tragic things like this causes our eyes and heart to turn towards Him. Faith is what pleases God. Fear, doubt and worry is the opposite of faith. To the day I die I will always trust God and I already KNOW that God is going to do a creative miracle in Gary Balletto’s life. He promised that He would never leave us or forsake us. We just have to surrender it all to The Lord, once we do and we trust Him completely, he comes through. Love you Tiger. #yourbiggestfan

  7. Where can we see the entire movie? Keep your faith, Gary. When we least expect it, miracles happen. Praying for you.

  8. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…..
    Sometimes when you’ve witnessed something beautiful and fulfilling, there are no words. Just that sound of Mmmmmm….
    That was exquisite on so many levels. I believe…I believe in “TIGER.”

  9. The Tiger never Dies Gary!!! Keep on fighting and we’ll keep on praying. God bless my friend.

  10. Eric First off my thoughts go to Gary and his family. He is an amazing person. Your work tells his story so well. I love how you just let this unfold and did not look for those cliched “barbershop angles.” I also love @2:18 in when the camera moves from close on Gary up to the barber. You pulled my focus from Gary for that few minutes and on to the barber and what he was saying in the bigger picture of things. No edit needed. Your camera alone did the job so well. Great stuff. I also love that you are not going crazy with the grading. It looks great

    • Tom Zammarelli Thank you so much my friend! You nailed it man. Everything I hope someone would appreciate when breaking it down bud! Can’ thank you enough!

  11. Eric your work is amazing not a day goes by that my family and i dont think of him and i cant wait for God to take him through the next stage!

  12. Gary Balletto you are sharing an important story with great courage and immeasurable vulnerability and you, sir, are also making movie history!!!! THANK YOU for sharing your life with us. May your journey inspire others as well. Sending MUCH LOVE and WARM EMBRACE. I believe in you and a body in motion stays in motion. Peace brother.
